UrFU opens Thai cultural exhibit to commemorate cooperative agreement

Last Friday, Ural Federal University opened a room dedicated to Thai culture in a ceremony attended by UrFU Rector Victor Koksharov and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Kingdom of Thailand in the Russian Federation Itti Ditbanjong.

After the ceremony, the head of UrFU signed a memorandum of understanding with the University of Burapha, outlining the areas of cooperation over the coming years.

The Thai room will give students the opportunity to learn more about the development of Russian-Thai relations and to see cultural artifacts.

The University of Barapha is also actively engaged in implementing various international programs and is interested in forming joint Russian language programs with UrFU, including Thai students studying in Russia and Russian teachers visiting Burapha.

The partnership will also give students the opportunity to study Thai boxing, a sport growing in popularity in Russia.
